7. Trimbach (Alsace, France): The Trimbach family began producing wine in Ribeauville, Alsace, France in 1626. When you visit the winery, we suggest you purchase Trimbach’s Clos Sainte Hune. Only 8000 bottles of this Riesling are produced each year. The wine produced in 2006 is now available in limited quantities.

6. Vega Sicila (Ribero del Duero, Spain): When the winery was founded in 1864, the vineyards were planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines from the Bordeaux region of France, as well as Malbec and Tempranillo vines. We recommend you visit Vega Sicila and purchase Uno, their signature wine, which is usually released 10 to 15 years after vintage.

5. Champagne Krug (Reims, France): When you’re in the Champagne region of France, we suggest you visit Champagne Krug, the Champagne house founded in Reims in 1843 by Joseph Krug. Krug produces five Champagnes: Krug Grande Cuvée. Krug Rosé, Krug Vintage, Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay.Krug Grande Cuvée

4. Chateau d’Yquem (Sauternes, France): Chateau d’Yquem is situated on top of the highest point in the Sauternes region. The vineyards slope downward from it on all sides. Visitors may walk around the estate (without going into the chateau) on Mondays through Saturdays without an appointment.

3. Chateau Latour (Pauillac, France): We recommend you visit Chateau Latour, built in 1378. It’s located in the Pauillac commune in the Médoc region of Bordeaux. The wines produced by the estate are a blend of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

2. Chateau Petrus (Pomerol, France): We suggest you visit Chateau Petrus, owned by the Arnaud family since the mid-1800s, located in the Pomerol region of Bordeaux. The estate grows 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

1. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (Vosne-Romanée, France): The wine that is considered to be the rarest and most expensive in the world is produced by the Vosne-Romanée estate in Vosne-Romanée. When you are visiting the Burgundy region of France, and you find a bottle of this wine, we suggest you buy it. Only 450 cases of this Pinot noir are produced in an average year.
